DE Duane Chisolm (6-4 245) of Beaufort committed Sunday to USC during an in-home visit with Gamecock defensive line coach Brad Lawing.
"It was as decision where I had no reason to say no," Chisolm said. "I have been a fan for so long. They pretty much offered me everything I needed. It was a decision I couldn't turn down."
Chisolm can play defensive end or tackle. His season was cut short by a torn ACL at midseason.
Chisolm said the commitment is a firm one, though he might take some other visits. He is scheduled to visit USC Jan. 17. He is the 23rd commitment for the Gamecocks.
